Didn't even know I had it!

After my divorce, I decided to see what had been stored in my attic since I bought my place in 1989. Such the "Adventure" for me since the attic was always the sole domain of my son and my Ex...No Girls Allowed!!! I was told. Anyways, I felt like an Archeologist as I opened all these boxes of carefully wrapped delicate china. I called Mom (she knows more about what I have than I do!) and she informed me that the china was my Great-Grandmother's great treasure.

Wow! It was like Christmas morning un-wrapping each precious package. I unwrapped 61 beautiful delicate china pieces with pink swirled roses with green and blue garland. Dinner and salade plates, salade and fruit bowls, cups and saucers. Even a gravy boat and large serving bowl!

I am curious as to what I have. From looking at one Haviland Limoges site, I believe this set is dated around 1890. I'd love to know more. If you know the age or pattern of it, I'd sure appreciate the information. Please feel free to email me at lynnmariejorgensen@yahoo.com.

Thanks All!!!

    lynn, i searched through alot of replacements ltd's haviland company. it was just too much for me.(LOL) don't worry i enjoy researching. eventually had to give up. but you might be pleased to know i found something very close to yours.(which by the way is a lovely set). if there were a page # i'd give it. unfortunately not. so the description is princess #hlc596. incase you want to try locating it the produck # is 32951. but with my own researching i think it would be much easier to register with R ltd. and you can even try. research@replacements.com. you'll need to send your pic. good luck
